7-11 CanadaSheep Mountain, Kluane

This is a forgotten country and thanks to Mark Collins from Ottawa, we are kept up to date with the latest weblinks. The Canadians have really gone to town on making geographical learning available to their citizens and the world.  I am not going to keep to my rules with this one. There are just too many good sites. The Canada e book is a good place to start.
